XWF is back and IN YOUR FACE! On episode number 2 Brian Knobbs and Jimmy Hart let us know that they tried to create the best storylines with some of the legends of wrestling and the new up and coming future stars of this business. The CEO Rena Mero is having a power struggle with the commissioner Rowdy Roddy Piper who is overstepping his boundaries. AJ Styles cuts a promo saying he is coming for the XWF Cruiserweight Championship. Norman Smiley vs Johnny B Badd have one of the best matches of the night. The Nasty Boys are currently feuding with the Road Warriors and decide to sneak attack them as they are fighting the Shane Twins. In the main event, Curt Hennig beats Buff Bagwell with help from Bobby The Brain Heenan. Vampiro comes down the stooge on them.
